  Eddie Maher

Born in Macau in 1957 to a Portuguese father and Shanghainese mother, moving to Hong Kong at a young age. He ran away from home at 16 and joined the Portuguese army, spending some of his service in Africa.

After returning to Hong Kong he went abroad again, learning Karate in Japan, Muay Thai in Thailand and then fighting for a Choy Li Fut school when he again returned to Hong Kong. Despite not knowing Choy Li Fut at the time, but just being a great fighter, he became the Hong Kong middleweight champion.

He would go on to work on many Hong Kong action movies and train many stars of the time at his "Health Club" gym in Tsim Sha Tsui. A notable client was Sammo Hung Kam-bo, who made Eddie his personal trainer for his role in Easter Condors. Eddie went with them to Canada and even had to chain up the fridge to keep Sammo on his strict diet.

After many years, Eddie closed his gym and he went on to run an electronics company. He passed away on the 19th of March 2019.
